Inglot Review pt 1

(Unfortunately photos in this post were lost due to The Great Deletion of 2014. Some efforts to re-do photos will be made but not all posts will be redone.)

As mentioned before I went to an Inglot store during my NYC trip. I had been coveting the Inglot eyeshadows for a couple of years actually and always browse their website putting things into a shopping cart as if I were actually going to buy them. I know...it's sad. Being able to actually go to a store, swatch colors, and not have to pay shipping made all my Inglot dreams come true. The main attraction here are their eyeshadows!

The store was a mass of color and the sales people were pretty helpful. My main goal was to create an eyeshadow palette that I could carry for traveling. Something with a mix of neutrals and fun colors.

You start by choosing a few that you like and sticking them onto a magnetized pan. The eyeshadows lift out of the display cases. This way you can coordinate as you go. It's so much easier than holding the pans separately in your hand and you can move colors around to see which go best together.

I absolutely love their freedom system! In the photo above you can see that, not only can you buy 5, 10, 20 pan eyeshadow palettes but you can buy palettes designed to fit face powders and blushes too. Their system is the perfect thing for travel with one palette fitting all your products! It's so great!

I ended up buying a 10 pan freedom palette with 10 eyeshadows (of course). There are a lot of photos of swatches and the eyeshadows up close so I'll post them in another post just because there will probably be way too many photos.... (how many times can you say post and photo in one sentence?)

Each eyeshadow comes vacuum sealed in a plastic cover and the number and product info are printed on the back. This is different from the original packaging I got years back which had a snap-close plastic cover. The vacuum seal is actually way more safe as it allows an air cushion in case you drop your shadow, which the sales person actually did. So thank goodness for that!

Swatches in next post.
